January 17th Dear Diary: Virginal Dog Days; My thoughts on recidivism


The dog is suffering a crisis in faith
but sometimes I feel
like my whole body is just a scab
that has been ripped off

Even so I know
I will not go to war with God
over it
because my mother with her mother
was gentle like I never was
with her

But her sisters love me
like I am the second coming
and I worry about their damnation
weighing upon my soul tonight
in the light of a blood moon
like I was baptized in a country river
by a man as holy as my Papaw under it

So build your own chapel in the boonies like their father
that will flourish
and the whole congregation of cacti
will keep judgment on hushed lips
as I fall from a grace I never deserved

I feed them scraps
Regurgitated meals that were fed to my ears
as a child as wild as an orchid

Now they believe the best in me
which makes me cry
because I really know the worst
